Hebrews 2:14-18; Psalm 105;
Mark 1:29-39

A typical day in the ministry of Jesus

Many Scripture experts have commented that Mark is presenting, in summary form, a typical day in the ministry of Jesus. Prayer, proclamation of the Good News and works of mercy filled his every day. The more he became known the greater demands on his time. Mark even records that people were searching for him long before daybreak! Can we hope to emulate this tireless giving of himself that is the hallmark of his ministry? Perhaps not. But we can promise to be truly attentive to those in whose company we find ourselves each day. Is that too much to ask?
